An episode of the popular United States television series "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet", with original commercials for Eastman Kodak. This episde aired 4 June 1958, and is called "The Bridge Group". In this episode, Ozzie decides to take a break from his usual routine of bowling and card games, but without the results he intended. This series was reasonably popular but somehow never ranked in the Top 20 (presumably because ABC-TV was a minor network at the time).

This episode was about Ozzie's getting tired of the weekly routines of playing bridges, bowling, and golf because their was a new neighbor named Harry Benson in the neighborhood who told him that it was nice to meet to new people in new environment. So Ozzie thought he should changed his weekly routine and try something new. He made up his mind not to play bridges on Tuesday night, neither as other routines. Soon, Ozzie found that his place among his fellows was replaced by Harry Benson, which meant that there was no place for him to play together with his friends. Then he had to try to have fun in some other ways. He went to a sketch class, watched a boxing game and went horsing riding; however nothing went on well. That made Ozzie miss his fellows and weekly routines. On another Tuesday night, his friends came to his place wanting to talk to Ozzie. They were missing Ozzie too. It turned out that Harry Benson was so good that always won their money, which made the guys want to have Ozzie back and play with them. Yet Ozzie said he still found meeting someone new was a great idea. In no times his friends put on some funny masks and started playing bridges with Ozzie. The weekly routines just went on same as before.

Ten Points, Part 2
(Yes, I'm the young, Muiltimedia person who likes this show and a whole bunch of other stuff, some of which is obviously very different to this light 50's sitcom).
1. Man, that old Kodak home movie camera looks stunning!
2. This isn't "The ABC Evening News", despite what many people may say.
3. Ozzie Nelson cames across as a smarter, more useful husband than legally allowed on United States Network TV these days.
4. I've said it before and I'll say it again: If you think all 1950's sitcoms were like this, then you sir are an idiot.
5. Hey Look, There's Frank Cady!
6. I once came across a website for which the members were so stupid, they thought "John Ritter's Three's Company" aired in the 1950's. Such beliefs, ladies and gentlemen, are a prime example of FAIL.
7. Can somebody PLEASE digitally restore this series?
8. Good script, ect.
9. Can somebody PLEASE tell Newsday that not all 1950's TV sitcoms were like this?
10. It's Offical: This show IS better than "Two & A Half Men" and other critically-acclaimed nonesense.
